Red Reposter - 7/13/09

  • Do you remember where this team was a month-and-a-half ago?
    I do. With what happened to Jay Bruce, this in particular has been running through my head all weekend.

  • John Fay wants to see Chris Heisey come up to replace Jay Bruce
    What would it hurt to take a look at him for 3-4 weeks? He also thinks a trade for Scott Rolen could be interesting.

  • Fay may want Heisey, but Dusty seems hesitant
    "Let’s not rush these guys, like we did with whole bunch of guys. If they’re going to be here, you want to play them every day. I was really impressed with Heisey in the spring. But he just got to Triple-A...Let’s let them play and tear it up for a while."

  • Jon Heyman looks at some players who may be available as the deadline approaches
    and mentions Bronson Arroyo and Aaron Harang. He says Arroyo seems like he's always on the block and that the Reds would really have to tailspin in order for them to consider trading Harang.

  • Keith Olbermann takes a shot at Dusty Baker

    However, Reds' manager Dusty Baker, sounding exactly like the kind of skippers in Atlanta who limited him to spot work for his first four years, seems totally unimpressed with the prospects of either Stubbs or Haisley [sic], dismissing their performances as just numbers. While an outfield of Nix and Gomes in left, Willy Taveras in center, and Chris Dickerson (who left today's game in New York with back spasms) may seem appealing to Dusty, it would probably assure the Reds of sinking into the basement in the NL Central. Dismissing Haisley [sic], or the more likely candidate Stubbs, just isn't rational - unless Baker is expecting the Reds to summon up a big-bat outfielder or shortstop before the trading deadline. Other than first baseman Yonder Alonso, there just aren't big-ticket trade chips in the Reds' system, and unless you're talking Matt Holliday, I don't think you're talking about trading Alonso.
